Sounds like the USA stuff is getting a price bump.
Yeah that about where I expected as well
I bought this Chartreuse J Larada 8 on Thursday, so excited for it to ship to me on Tuesday! Left it at the show for people to try and for Tosin to use for the weekend. i did try to convince Ivan to sell me the WMI with the quilt top but sounds like they're holding onto that for a bit since it's a proto. They are very comparable to the J Larada and I think people will be happy with them for sure
Also had the opportunity to plug it into Neural DSP's Archetype Abasi, wish I could say it made me able to thump but I don't think you could ask for a much better combo lol
Oh and if anyone wanted a good heel detail shot, here's the neck joint for the bolt on Laradas
Yeah, I’m not liking that weird flange on the neck. I feel like there would have been some better ways to do that junction there.
It feels pretty similar to the set neck heel, creates a nice "pocket" for your thumb to lock into when playing in the upper register. It looks more offensive than it actually is when playing imo
Is that the same janky neck joint the J Laradas have?
Are the wmi neck joints a j Larada neck joints different/they look horrible
Remember that we've already had one neck joint without that extra bit of wood and you end up with the G A P
I'm happy with that joint
It seems fine to me. Look at that nice tight neck pocket!
I’ve looked at it a couple times and I take it back I like it but I think I’d need to try it out
Well you have done it Abasi. You have made me want to go back to playing 8 string. I played it exclusively for 5 years then quit for a whole year. I now want to go back.
Folks nitpicking neck joints they've never played is top-tier SSO.
Kinda lame that the USA and J Laradas have the USB charger for the pickups, but the WMI just has a battery box.
Hey I’ve changed
That charging pack aint cheap, using a battery box prolly keeps costs down, which I'd imagine is the goal of the import model
Any talk of dates for the WMI model availability on the website? Is production underway or will it start some time in 2020?
Im definitely considering one as my first 8-string.
The impression I got was later this year for the WMI Laradas
Yeah, I’m sure it plays well. It just looks like a weird design thing. I realize I’m drinking tea with my pinky up on this, but I think there’s probably a more elegant design to get the gap there closed, and not have that flange hanging on. Maybe extend the body under the neck a bit, and remove the flange. I mean, I’m prolly gonna get one anyway, but I just didn’t expect to see that.
i'm buying the blue one
